Happiness: A Guide to Developing Life’s Most Important Skill

Altruistic love reflects the intimate interdependence between beings, our happiness and that of others, while egocentricity creates an ever-widening gap between self and others. Happiness is a state of inner fulfillment, not the gratification of inexhaustible desires for outward things.

Plaidoyer pour le bonheur

L’amour altruiste reflète l’interdépendance intime entre les êtres, notre bonheur et celui d’autrui, tandis que l’égocentrisme creuse un fossé toujours plus profond entre soi et autrui. Le bonheur est un état d’accomplissement intérieur, pas la satisfaction de désirs inépuisables pour les choses extérieures.

Matthieu Ricard
